Windows 10 will be the final version of the company’s famous operating system.
A development executive confirmed the news at a conference but added that once the new version is released this summer, future updates will come in an “ongoing manner”.
Speaking at Microsoft’s Ignite conference in Chicago, developer evangelist Jerry Nixon said:
Right now we’re releasing Windows 10, and because Windows 10 is the last version of Windows, we’re all still working on Windows 10.
In the future, Windows could be updated with small, free updates periodically, or even via weekly updates with barely any user intervention. Large feature additions will still come.
One of the major features of Windows 10 will be total unification between desktop and mobile operating systems, although only desktop will be supported when it is first launched.
All these new features are great and all but we’re just hoping the newest version is less irritating to use than Windows 8.
